DIY Fall Design Tips for Your Curb Appeal
Now that fall is here, it’s a good time to prepare the outside of your home with fall decorations. Sprucing up your replacement windows and doors with some unique decorations can be the perfect way to begin the season and get prepared for scarves, sweaters and pumpkin spice lattes.
Enhance your curb appeal this fall with these fun décor projects that are easy, unique and on-trend:
Project #1: Corn Husk Garland
This DIY will add fantastic curb appeal to your home’s windows or doors, depending on where you prefer to hang the garland. Wherever you end up putting it, all this project takes is a few easy steps: determine the length of your rope (outlining your windows or door) with a few additional inches to get a droopy effect, and affix corn husks to the rope with a hot glue gun. Put up your new garland to accentuate your home access points!
Project #2: Door Wreath
Mirror the warm, fall colors and incorporate them into a DIY wreath to hang on your door. The supply list includes a wooden stick wreath, burlap, artificial fall foliage, scissors and a glue gun. Here is the process: Cut the burlap into four 4x4-inch squares. Then, fold and glue the pieces of burlap along the sides of the wreath while gluing foliage by the burlap pieces.
Project #3: Welcome Sign
Add warmth to your home this fall with a blackboard “Welcome” or “Happy Fall” sign outside of your door. Remind passersby what the season is really about and draw focus toward your festive fall entryway.
While preparing for fall with great DIY outdoor décor projects is an easy way to get into the season spirit, remember to prepare your replacement doors and windows for the cooler weather, too. They may look fantastic, but if your doors and windows are aged or unprepared for the approaching winter weather, they could let in cold drafts and leave you feeling cool in the upcoming months.
